On to the earring
Next, for the earring, I select the heart shape from the Pattern tool and create it. Then I use the Free Transform and Mesh Transformation tools to adjust the shape of the heart so that it matches the angle of the ear. The Soft Airbrush helps to create volume, lightness and shadows, which gives the earring a plastic appearance.
I spend time in Photoshop to check the details on all elements of my image, such as the shadows, lights and colour temperature. If necessary I enhance the rendering or correct them, ensuring that the overall image has a consistency about it. Once I’m happy that the lighting is correct, I put down my stylus. My pin-up is finished!
